Women's Sandals for Different Foot Types: How to Find The Perfect Fit for Your Feet

Women's Sandals for Different Foot Types: How to Find The Perfect Fit for Your Feet

When it comes to footwear, women often prioritise style over comfort. However, it's essential to strike a balance between fashion and functionality, especially when it comes to something as important as your feet.

If you're in Australia and looking for the perfect pair of stylish flat sandals with either arch support, wide fit, or removable insoles, you've come to the right place. In this blog post, we'll explore how to find the ideal women's sandals for different foot types, with a focus on the stylish and supportive styles we have available at Planet Shoes.

Understanding Your Foot Type

Before we delve into the world of women's sandals, it's important to understand your foot type. Everyone's feet are different, so understanding your foot type can help you find sandals that give the proper support and comfort.

Flat Feet: Some people have flat feet, which means they have little to no arch. If you have flat feet, you'll want sandals with excellent arch support to help distribute your body weight evenly.

Wide Feet: Wide feet are wider than the average foot. For women with wide feet, finding sandals that provide a roomy fit is essential to prevent discomfort and blisters.

High Arches: On the opposite end of the spectrum, some people have high arches. Sandals with adequate arch support can help cushion and support your feet if you fall into this category.

The Importance of Arch Support

For women with flat feet or high arches, finding sandals with proper arch support is vital. Neglecting arch support can lead to discomfort, pain, and even long-term foot problems.

We offer a wide range of flat sandals with excellent arch support such as our chic Sylvie sandal. Our sandals support flat feet and high arches, giving stability and reducing strain on your arches. Great for women with these foot types.

Versatility: From Flat Sandals to Walking Shoes

Planet Shoes offers a versatile range of women's sandals that are perfect for various occasions. Whether you're heading to the beach, going for a casual stroll, or needing something for an evening out, we’ve got you covered.

Flat Sandals: Planet Shoes' flat sandals are not only stylish but also incredibly comfortable. They're perfect for a day at the beach or a leisurely walk around town. With multiple designs and colours available, you can find a pair that suits your style. Whether you’re after a closed-toe sandal such as Birdine or a more minimal style such as our Brynley, we’ve got something for everyone.

Walking Shoes: If you're looking for sandals that provide extra support for extended walks, our walking sandals are designed with comfort and durability in mind, ensuring your feet stay happy, even on those longer walks. 

Removable Insole for Customisation

One of the standout features of some sandals are the removable insoles. You can adjust the cushioning and support in your sandals, like our trendy Effie-P, with this feature.

Custom Comfort: With removable insoles, you can add your own orthotic inserts or choose to use the provided insoles for a personalised level of comfort.

Easy Maintenance: Removable insoles are also easy to clean and replace, ensuring your sandals stay fresh and odour-free.


finding the perfect pair of women's sandals for your unique foot type doesn't have to be a daunting task. With Planet Shoes, you have access to a variety of unique and stylish sandals, ensuring that your feet stay comfortable and stylish no matter where you go. Take the time to understand your foot type and prioritise the comfort of your feet, they’ll thank you for it!
